Two Gallant Sons of Devon: A Tale of the Days of Queen Bess Harry Collingwood Author
Shop on Barnes & Noble


It was a little after seven o'clock on June 19 in the year of Our Lord 1577, and business was practically over for the day. The taverns and alehouses were, of course, still open, and would so remain for three or four hours to come, for the evening was then, as it is now, their most busy time; but nearly all the shops in Fore Street of the good town of Devonport were closed, one of the few exceptions being that of Master John Summers, Apothecary, and Dealer in all sorts of Herbs and Simples, as was announced by the sign which swung over the still open door of the little, low-browed establishment.
